Clapton did have a connection w/the band or Robertson on Reason to cry, Ron Wood no idea,Ringo no buiness being there and couldn't here him if you tried. Van Morrison lived in Sausalito and I know of no connection w/ the Band.I don't think it was Dylan as the pain in the ass as much as his and the Band's manger the bloated Albert Grossman who wanted Dylan to do only one song and I think him and Bill Graham dooked it out and Graham won that one.Still being so local and now we all know they didn't play anywhere near that date why weren't the members of the Dead there and surely 1 more amp w/ Garcia knowing all of Dylan's tunes would have fit perfectly. Some one out there has to know the reason whether they were there surely Bill would of let them in just to hang they were good friends.

Weren't Joni Mitchell and Neil Young there too? Was that the Canadian connection? And where did Emmylou Harris fit in?

Emmylou was not at the gig she was either in that leading or ending waltzing around shot. The Candian connection is an interesting one but I not felling it.Ronnie Hawkins who gave the Band their real break in his band from Canada makes the most sense. I still get very enoyed at the way the original was cleaned up to this sterile concert film.Yes Neil Young had a bad start and a rock of coke hanging out of his nose ,Dylan had that theater make-up on which not a sole knew why and it's it's all gone now .I also have been rethinking how far back the Band and the Dead actually have known each other.The earliest I know about was the east to west Festival train and you clearly see Garcia and Rick Danko having a grand ole time.Then there was the mega tour also w/ the Allmans at Roosevelt Stadium,Watkins Glen and also which many have forgoten because I think both their sets sucked was at Woodstock.

All in all, one hell of a shindig. Especially since we're still dissecting it 35+ years later.

It is hard to say why, might have been some of the things I threw out above or, maybe it just didn't come to mind . Like when you have some getoether and realize later, that you should have invited whoever .
Is it possible they or Garcia were asked and they declined ? I have never heard anything about it from the Dead folks .
I for one, would have like to have had Garcia up there . But to be honest, as much as I like the Band, Dylan , etc., I am glad I saw the Dead instead, a month before this concert, and 3 months after it .
